Ryan Giggs has revealed the support he has been receiving from Sir Alex Ferguson ahead of every game he takes charge of with Wales.

The Manchester United legend faces his biggest match as a manager on Tuesday night as Wales host Hungary in their crucial Euro 2020 qualification fixture.

Victory for Wales will secure automatic qualification for next summer's tournament, while a win for the visitors will book their own passage into the competition.

Giggs is well prepared for such big occasions from his experiences as a United player but the match represents new territory for him as a manager.

When asked if Ferguson has offered any special advice ahead of the Hungary fixture, Giggs revealed the continued support he has received from his former manager.

"He wished me good luck the other day for the game, which he always does. But apart from that, no," Giggs told reporters.

Despite an incredible career at club level Giggs never got to play in an international tournament while representing his country.

 

However, when asked if his own experiences as a player were driving him on for greater success as a coach Giggs insisted Tuesday night's encounter should not focus on him.

"It's not about me. It's about the country as a whole," he added.

"The team in 2016, whether you were involved or a fan, it was amazing. If we can re-create that atmosphere, it's fantastic.

"It's not about individuals. I was a player, but that's over, now I'm a manager.

"I think we've put ourselves in a great position, and we've still got one game to go."
